ET8x Series Rugged Tablets:
The Enterprise Ready Rugged Tablets from Zebra Technologies

Consumer-grade tablets are not built to withstand rugged enterprise handling. Your facility benefits from using technology that is transportable, yet mobile computers can be bulky and if there is a scanning device, it often needs to be tethered to a host device. Tablets would be great for your company if it doesn’t have the standard consumer format that isn’t truly compatible to the line of work performed.

Zebra Technology, the global leader in barcode technology, understands the necessity of durable, rugged tablets that provide greater mobility and easier in-house access for all your company needs. Rugged and ready for work, the ET8x Series Tablets can survive drops, subzero temperatures, and even hose downs.

The ET8x Series has a 12-inch screen, coated with protective Corning Gorilla Glass. With advanced wireless connectivity of WiFi 6E and 4G/5G in some models, you never have to worry work lost. And speaking of lost work, can you swap out the batteries in your current tablet without losing your work or starting over? You can with these tablets.

Zebra has the technological edge on commercial grade rugged tablets. Give your employees the ability to get the job done right, in any enterprise environment.

The ET80 and ET85 Series Rugged Tablets

The dependable rugged 2-in-1 tablet created for workers the world depends upon is 35% thinner and 20% lighter than major 2-in-1 competitors with the same screen size. The 12-inch screen with a 3:2 aspect ratio provides a bigger display to see information, improving productivity. The screen has Corning Gorilla Glass protection with an anti-reflective and anti-smudge screen treatment, has a night-vision mode, and is readable in sunlight.

The Windows Hello camera uses facial recognition to give users easy, instant, and secure access. Or add the optional fingerprint reader for an easy two-factor authentication process for added security. With dual speakers and four noise cancelling microphones in the front and back, push-to-talk, video calling, note dictation, voice commands and communications are more clearly understood.

Go from tablet to laptop and back to tablet in seconds by simply attaching and detaching the rugged keyboard. A universal dock can also transform the tablet into a desktop in the office or a mobile workstation in a police car, truck, forklift, and more.
